The stock market is based on loaning a company money based on a simple way of the public as a whole and how they believe in them. However, with such things as the HFT we see that this is no more. As such, as a economic warfare agent. One can pretty much make sure that when its agents in the stock markets sell at the red line for the HFT to kick in that there will be a certain amount of determent down that adds onto the dump of stocks. This means that instead of having a proper person to sell your stocks for you. All that is needed is who can sell faster on the matter before somebody else sells or buys.
Furthermore, the Communist Chinese now this. As such, they can easily set up proper economic warfare units to create an insecure SEC and thus by pass the measures created for such dumping based on speculation that the SEC tried to stop, from dumping out the stock market and folks liquidable holdings.
A literal cold trading pattern.
